In the first paragraph of Chukat the Zohar tells us:
“ מִי שֶׁמִּשְׁתַּדֵּל בַּתּוֹרָה כְּאִלּוּ עוֹמֵד כָּל יוֹם עַל הַר סִינַי וּמְקַבֵּל הַתּוֹרָה”
“Those who make effort in the study of the Torah it’s as if he stands everyday on Mount Sinai and receives the Torah.”
It’s very (x10) important to understand that.
We know that the revelation of the Torah on Mount Sinai was with unity and the people experience the state of Immortality. Studying the Torah takes us to that time of revelation because the seed of the Torah is there.
To better understand this principal just think about emotional event in your life and try to relive it. As you go deeper into the details of the event you will feel the same or similar emotions coming us again to the surface. It could be laughter, tears, pain etc. The event was in the past but it can be brought back with our thoughts that are a spiritual connection to the event.
We are many generations and lifetimes far from the event on Mount Sinai. It’s very hard to get the same feelings and awe that our souls experienced back then. It’s much easier to bring back feelings of an event that we experienced in this lifetime. For our souls it’s important to go back and feed on the energy it received on Mount Sinai.
The core of our soul is immortal because it’s part of the Light of the Endless. During many lifetimes we gathered layers of ‘curtains’ made by our negative actions. When we correct our selves we cleanse and remove these heavy curtains and we can see the Light better.
The Zohar is the highest level of Torah study that rabbi Shimon gave us as a gift. With the study of the Zohar we can create a wormhole to Mount Sinai and cleanse our souls.
